PARTICIA JO STONE
Jo Stone is a Colorado native, whose grandparents were homesteaders in eastern Colorado. Jo has both her bachelors and masters degrees in English literature as well as her law degree from the University of Colorado in Boulder, CO. Jo's practice focuses on estate and business planning, although she also has an extensive background in litigation of all kinds, including commercial, business, and personal matters. Her diverse background and experience allows her to approach all legal matters in a very circumspect and comprehensive manner that is somewhat unique in relation to the narrowly-focused niche firms prevalent today. Jo’s diversity also allows her to develop long lasting relationships with a wide variety of clients who may need different legal assistance through the years.
In addition to practicing law, Jo is on the faculty of the Graduate School of Business at the University of Phoenix and has taught at a variety of other colleges and universities throughout her career in the areas of business and arts and sciences. Jo is an active member of the Rotary Club of Parker and has served as the Director of International projects, Director of Club Service, as well as holding various posts in Rotary District 5450. She is an active advocate of Rotary’s program to eradicate Polio worldwide.
Outside of the office, Jo and her husband, Jim, enjoy spending lots of time with their large family, as well as writing, music and travel.
Originally from Buffalo, New York, Justin graduated cum laude from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law and was admitted to practice in February 2005. Since admission, Justin has focused on estate planning, disability planning, probate, and trust administration, including aspects of real estate, tax law, elder law, closely-held businesses, and more. From the very beginning of his career, Justin has worked directly and closely with his clients. He excels at listening to their objectives, educating them on their options, and developing efficient plans and strategies tailored to each client's specific needs. These characteristics have helped Justin develop a solid reputation among the professional and local communities as a dependable and caring attorney, capable of handling difficult and complex situations.
Justin's practice has expanded to also serve clients in matters of family law, and civil litigation.
Outside of the office, Justin enjoys spending time with his family and trying in vain to take the energy "edge" out of his dogs throughout the diversity of Colorado's open space. If you want him to talk your ear off, ask him about rock climbing, fishing, skiing, or his wife's quarter-horse addiction.
